More possibilities from updated Google Hangouts
Google presented an updated version of Hangouts, which got new functions for communication inside company: Chat for communication and Meet for meeting organization.
One of the main objectives of Google Hangouts is business competition with Slack and other developers, offering user-friendly tools for corporate communication. However, many users say that Google creates poorly thought-out communication tools. For example, when updating the service, company divided Chat and Meet functions for no apparent reason, while in Slack, they are combined, which is much more convenient.
Hangouts Chat almost completely replicates Slack. Users can communicate in so-called “rooms”. The application has already integrated many Google services, and one of the useful functions of Chat is meeting planning using a chatbot @meet. Later on, it will be possible to create other bots in the application as well.
Unlike the previous product, which is being beta-tested now, Hangouts Meet is already available. The application allows users to plan and organize meetings in several clicks. It is possible to invite up to 30 persons to a meeting.
So, now, when subscribing to G Suite, company gets access to two new products.
